bjnoonan posted a topic in Hebrew Syntax GuidesThe standard Hebrew reference grammars say that two similar-sense (but non-cognate) nouns in a construct chain can function like a superlative/elative (e.g., GKC §133i; Joüon §141n; IBHS §14.5b). I'd like to search for examples of this beyond what are listed in the reference grammar, but it's (practically) impossible to look through all the construct chains that occur in the Hebrew Bible and identify ones formed from two similar-sense nouns. To search for this type of construct I thought of using the Andersen-Forbes Morphology & Syntax Database: because this database tags many words with a semantics category, in theory you could search for two nouns in construct that agree with each other on their Semantics tag. However, it doesn't appear that you can specify agreement for the Semantics tag. Am I missing something, or is this an option that should be added to the AGREE box in Accordance? If it's not currently available, does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about this search?
When I am looking at a passage, I am trying to find an option that indicates the verbs, adjectives, nouns, participles, etc. I am sure Accordance can do this, but I've been looking for it for hours and haven't been able to find it in any forums or by myself. I would like to be able to see these different parts of speech highlighted, circled, or underlined. Can someone please help me out!!!? Thank you!
